Uthman on Martyrdom: Killed while fasting, breaks fast in Paradise

Nafi’ reported: Uthman, may Allah be pleased with him, saw the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, in his dream on the night he was killed the following morning. The Prophet said, “O Uthman, break your fast with us tonight.” Then, he was killed while he was fasting.

عَنْ نَافِعٍ أَنَّ عُثْمَانَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ رَأَى النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فِي مَنَامِهِ فِي اللَّيْلَةِ الَّتِي قُتِلَ فِي صَبِيحَتِهَا فَقَالَ يَا عُثْمَانُ أَفْطِرْ عِنْدَنَا اللَّيْلَةَ فَقُتِلَ وَهُوَ صَائِمٌ
